The 17-year-old was also arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and public order offence relating to a previous incident.

The pair were taken to a police station in Merseyside for questioning and have been released under investigation.

The arrests were made as part of the ongoing work of Operation EVOLVE Liverpool-Knowsley, an initiative by Merseyside Police to prevent serious and organised crime.

Officers made two arrests after a search of a house in Huyton on Friday, April 2 as part of the work of Merseyside Police's Operation EVOLVE Liverpool-Knowsley, designed to prevent serious and organised crime.

Neighbourhood Inspector Jennifer Murray, one of the officers involved in EVOLVE Liverpool-Knowsley, said: “We know that those involved in the supply of illegal drugs bring misery to our communities.

“It is an illicit trade that is dependent on violence and intimidation and preys on the most vulnerable in our communities.

“We are determined to remove drugs, and all those involved in its creation, supply and distribution from our streets.

“Our officers and partners are committed to making this happen, but we need your help to make a lasting difference.

“We are asking our communities to come forward with information, no matter how small, so that we can build cases that put offenders behind bars for many years.

“If, for whatever reason, you do not feel comfortable speaking to police you can contact Crimestoppers, anonymously. While no-one will ever know you made that report, it will help us focus our attention where it will have the biggest impact.

“When it comes to making our communities safer – silence is not an option.”

Anyone with any information about drugs or any other gang-related activity is asked to call Merseyside Police on 101, DM us @MerPolCC or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
